Laser Acne and Scar Removal

IPL Laser Treatment for Acne and Scars in Boston Breakouts can be a big issue for those who suffer from acne. Some people even experience bad scarring from constant breakouts. Laser scar removal is a very effective treatment for removing acne scars. At Sudbury Med Spa, we can help restore the beauty of your skin with our IPL treatments for acne scar removal in Boston, MA.

What is IPL?

Several medications and face washes can reduce or even stop acne breakouts. Once this is taken care of, the next step is to consider getting the scars removed with lasers. IPL or intense pulsed light is a method in which short light pulses target the affected area.

The aim of IPL treatment is to minimize the overall appearance of acne scarring. Using light to treat the affected area, this method encourages the growth of new cells and smoother skin. It doesn’t completely eliminate the scars but does noticeably reduce their appearance. Our team at Sudbury Med Spa can let you know if you are a good candidate for IPL treatments in Boston.

How is it Done?

Laser scar removal works in a couple of ways. First, heat generated by the laser removes the top layer of the skin. This layer slowly peels away after the treatment and your skin will look smoother.

Second, while the skin with the scars is breaking apart and peeling, the light and heat from the laser stimulate the growth of new skin cells and the production of collagen. Blood flow to the area is higher due to the heat. Both these elements work to make the scars look less prominent and the laser treatment promotes steady healing.

What to Expect from the Procedure

IPL is used mostly to treat scarring on the face. It can also be used effectively in other areas with acne scarring such as the arms, neck, upper torso, and back. Some side effects of the IPL procedure are redness, swelling, and mild pain at the site. These usually disappear after some time and the redness takes a bit longer to fade away.

You will have to take good care of your skin for the time specified by the doctor. This is because your skin will be sensitive to sun damage. Avoid tanning beds and being out in the sun for 8 weeks after the treatment. Keep in mind that the results will not be evident immediately. It takes 10-14 days for the results to be visible.

Things to Consider

IPL treatments for acne scars are not covered by insurance. The cost of treatment depends on the following:

  • The area and number of scars to be treated
  • Number of treatments required


The final results were amazing
